HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT AN ASIAN HANDICAP BET IS? LET’S TAKE A LOOK
ASIAN HANDICAP BETTING EXPLAINED
Asian Handicap is a form of betting which looks to level up each team’s chances of winning a match by giving the weaker team a handicap start. It also removes the possibility of a draw, giving you only two outcomes to bet on.
There are two types of Asian Handicaps – those with a single handicap (e.g. Team A -0.5) and those with two handicaps (e.g. Team A -0.5/-1.0). If you are placing a bet on the two-handicap market, you are actually placing a bet on Team A -0.5 and Team A -1.0, as each bet is for half your actual stake.
If you are placing a bet on a half-goal handicap (e.g. -0.5, -1.5, -2.5), there is always a winner in the market, as it’s not possible to score half a goal.
If you are placing a bet on a full-goal handicap (e.g. +1.0, +2.0, +3.0) and the result is level after the handicap has been applied, then all bets on the market will be refunded.
